Changing dynamics of the world (geo-political powers, distribution of resources, expendable wealth, international growth) together with a rise in life expectancies, maturing baby boomer generation and offspring, prospering economies, and a technological revolution, presented new societal pressures in the new millennium. While plastic surgery and cosmetic rejuvenation modalities offered this opportunity, it also came with a price and some limitations. Though the technology has been used in aesthetic facial and body applications for many years, it was confined mostly to celebrities, politicians and wealthy individuals.
Correcting signs of aging, improving physical appearance, and becoming more appealing by attempting to look like the “idols of the world” was a typical justification for the few who had the surgery. However, aesthetic surgical intervention and facial rejuvenation in the past was done more for professional and socio-economic reasons—putting aside the serious medical and emotional challenges, the most important job for plastic surgeons is to repair trauma, accident and birth defects—however, this too is changing as demand to improve ones appearance continues to grow. These trends are amply covered in the report.
